Posted: Friday, December 9, 2011 8:03 pm
UT Extension Family and Consumer Science agents Benita Giffin in Obion County and Barbara Berry in Gibson County have been certified to instruct a six-session program entitled “Living Well With Chronic Conditions.”
Staff from Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., wrote the curriculum “Living Well With Chronic Conditions.” Each class will last about two hours and it is free to anyone interested.
“Living Well With Chronic Conditions” is a fun, skill-building program designed for individuals and couples with chronic diseases. The program helps individuals take day to day responsibility for the care of their chronic conditions. Participants gain skills necessary to self-manage their health conditions and work effectively with their health care professionals. At the last class, each participant will receive the book “Living Well With Chronic Conditions.” This book is a $20 value.
Those who register are expected to attend all six sessions.
Classes will be offered in Union City at the Obion County Public Library Conference Room B on Feb. 7, 9, 14, 15, 21 and 23 at 1:30 p.m.
To register in Obion County, call Mrs. Giffin at 885-3742 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. To register in Gibson County, call Ms. Berry (731) 855-7656.
